Cable Vs Telco: Who Has the Next-gen Access Advantage?

March 13, 2018

As the battle for business and residential markets heats up, Cable MSOs and Telcos are racing to deploy next generation fiber-centric technologies as well as modern, software-defined access (SD-Access) architectures. At times competing and at other times aligning, Cablecos and Telcos see next generation technologies and SD-Access as key to competing and winning in the emerging Gigabit Society.

This has resulted in an alphabet soup of technologies, architectures and deployment models. So how do you make sense of these competing technologies and architectures? Join us as for an informative webinar where we compare and contrast Cablecos and Telcos emerging technologies and architectures, and learn about the rapidly changing telecom landscape. Topics to be covered include:

  • Gigabit+ technologies such as EPON, 10G EPON, Gfast, XGS PON and NG-PON2

  • Fiber Deep and DAA Vs. Telcos FTTx Architectures

  • Symmetric Gigabit and Status of FDX

  • Is SD-Access the Unifying Access Architecture?
